Every artist knows the goal is to capture the moment. Whether you're a musician, content creator or producer on the go, the StudioLive AR12c is a full-featured portable audio interface, mixer, and recorder that allows you to do just that.

With 8 PreSonus XMAX preamps delivering crisp accurate input through the analog channels to the 96kHz converters, you'll be sure to capture every detail. This 14 input 4 output interface has line, instrument, and RCA inputs providing enough connectivity for interviews, songwriting sessions, or tracking small combos. Plus, there's a 1/8" jack and Bluetooth connectivity for mobile devices. Phantom power is also included so you can use your favorite condenser microphones as well. On-board effects can be used to enhance the experience during the recording process while leaving the final decision for mixdown.

You'll get integrated software with the AR12c making it the all-in-one recording and mixing solution. Connect the USB output to your computer and you can track, mix, and master right out of the box with the included software after installation. Need to take it with you? You can record whenever and wherever you want by tracking directly to the AR8C's stereo SD recorder. Insert any SD/SDHC card and you’re ready to record your main mix, so you can simplify your recording process whenever you want.
